My favorite quote from Francoeur is "ma poupée en gyprock"
("my plasterboard doll"). 80's rock poetry...

Using PD instead of Max is very challenging in some contexts where most
people uses Max; at some point there's no arguments left to explain why PD
is a better choice other than stating that ugliness is the most prominent
feature of free softwares. Of course jMax is not handicaped by this
essential feature. 
( B.T.W., have you seen DIP for jMax?

PD's gui is not ugly, it is simple and is lacking some useful features.
But the more I try FLTK, the more I like it. SpiralSynth, SpiralLoops and
spiralsynthmodular have "nice" GUIs made with FLTK. There's even a tcl/tk
binding for FLTK 1.* : http://pages.infinit.net/cclients/files/fltk.html
